Wednesday 25 November - A Rainy Day

Building of the Day - Roushill at Mardol

The English Bridge
It has been raining on and off all day.  It is not particularly cold but not conducive to long walks.  We went back to the market to sample the dumpling house which, like the fishmongers has room for just 12 people.  
The daily special was excellent,  The dumplings (Ham and shrimp, Bejing and beef) were fresh, very light and cooked to order
The sweet scones had almost all been sold but there were a few cheese ones which were also very good.
 I found some pickled onions and piccalilli and am now set up.
C. R. Birch & Son have been in business since 1909 as an independent hardware store.  Maybe they were closed for lunch but I don't know.
The full story of C.R. Birch is found here:

End of an era as historic Shrewsbury shop to close its doors

We called in at the Three Fishes on the way back where a good number were having lunch.  Mary had her usual Sauvignon Blanc while I went Catatonic, a Salopian Brewery product - pale, strong and with a hint of grapefruit.
